Before one ever starts fishkeeping it is necessary to clean the inner walls of the aquarium using soda or salt crystals. Water for fish eggs incubation must comply with the natural by its chemistry and features as much as it is possible. To reduce a risk of larvae bacteriological infection it is necessary to sterilize water by ultraviolet irradiation or by ozonation.
The tank with the spawning and later with larvae and midge must always be clean and settled. Every day one should change circa 10% of its volume and change it for fresh and settled one. It is not recommended to plant a tank with midge too much because one should take them out of the tank to clean them, meanwhile plenty of midges usually stick to the leaves and afterwards get to the water pipes and die.
Do not offer any nurture to the larvae before turning into midge and starting their independent swimming. During this life stage they will nourish using the contents of their yolk sac. Hence any nurture presence in the tank will cause nothing but its pollution and it may lead to the whole offspring death. The availability of a complete set of grinded live or dry food will be very important by the moment when midges will start their independent nutrition.
The live-bearers are the most convenient fish on this point because their offspring gets self-dependent at once and starts food seeking. These fish is larger than young fish born from eggs and that is why the first food for them must be bigger. They can properly feed with cyclopidae, for example.
The rest of nutrition must be obligatory removed after feeding process. If this would not be done then decaying food may turn into a nice base for bacterial growth, and this may lead to fish offspring death.
Space and volume
The midges should be placed into a wide rearing aquarium which volume must be selected taking into account fish kinds, peculiarities and demands. In case the midges are growing quickly, the capacity of the tank must be 30-40 liters, and may be less for those who develop not so quickly.
Overpopulation is dangerous for such the inhabitants. Too dense “neighborhood” may turn into hygiene deterioration and a stress for fish as a result. Along with it food will proceed to get in such a tank and consequently water will frequently get bad and will demand the everyday change.
Moreover it is necessary to install a filter, still its power must be optimal to clean the tank but not to suck the midges in. A midge breeding is a difficult and rather laborious affair. But only observing all of these rules you will be able to breed healthy and valuable fish.
